Supposedly, matter falls inside the black hole whenever it reaches its event horizon. The Planck scale, however, imposes a limit on how much matter can occupy the center of a black hole. It is shown here that the density of matter exceeds Planck density in the singularity, and as a result, spacetime tears apart. After the black hole is formed, matter flows from its center to its border due to a topological force; namely, the increase on the tear of spacetime due to its limit, until it reaches back to the event horizon, generating the firewall phenomenon. We conclude that there is no spacetime inside black holes. We propose a solution to the black hole information paradox.
